Human Body: Form and Function
Biology: Basic Concepts and Biodiversity
This course is designed to introduce students to the basic concepts of genetics, evolution, and the development of the biological diversity found on Earth. The class incorporates a laboratory design to give practical experiences to the student. The course also utilizes information and exercises found on the World Wide Web.
Populations and Communities
This course is a broad introduction to the principles of physiology, population, and community ecology through a discussion of ecological theory and examples. Introduction to the use of mathematical and computer models as a tool for describing and/or predicting ecological processes will also be incorporated.
This course is designed to give a better understanding of mammalian anatomy, focusing primarily on humans and felines. Function and structure will be integrated through slide examination, laboratory experiments, and dissections.
